COURSE DESCRIPTION Film, video, and multi-media terminology, technique, and theory are instructional areas in this program. Students learn to operate state-of-the-art video equipment, video cameras and field equipment for productions outside of the classroom, and professional studio cameras, audio equipment, special effect generators, and character generators for use in the fully outfitted studio. With parental permission, equipment may be checked out and used for on-location shoots.
Students learn post-production skills on cutting edge non-linear editing equipment, and finalize their projects to DVD. Toward the end of the first year, students may be presented with internship and professional work opportunities.
In advanced level courses, students operate professional television production equipment in the field and studio. Students are expected to take advantage of numerous internship opportunities that are available. In addition, students hone their skills in the areas of pre-production, production, and post-production. They demonstrate mastery of media production knowledge and skills, and function as media producers by creating original productions developed and marketed toward target audiences.
Students assemble a professional digital portfolio to advance post-secondary and career goals. They investigate the dynamic media production industry and identify opportunities for real-world experiences (e.g., internship, job shadowing).
